There were a few familiar faces at New England Baptist Hospital’s annual gala, held the other night at the Intercontinental Hotel, none more recognizable than three-time Super Bowl champ Tedy Bruschi and former Celtic Walter McCarty. . . . Kelly Clarkson, who’s in town to perform Thursday with Keith Lockhart and the Pops at Northeastern, did a meet-and-greet with a few MIX 104.1 listeners Wednesday.
